Artificial Intelligence-Enabled Intelligent Transportation Systems Webinar

June 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm EDT

The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) recognizes the promise AI offers for achieving considerable benefits in ITS, such as improving safety, mobility, equity, efficiency, accessibility, productivity, resilience, and reducing individual and societal costs, emissions, and other negative environmental impacts. Several industries use CMMs to objectively assess an organization’s processes and ability to execute activities in the scope of the CMM topic area. This document provides an AI-enabled ITS CMM as an approach for organizations to self-assess their strengths and weaknesses for incorporating and mainstreaming AI into their ITS programs and operational processes. The AI-enabled ITS CMM fills a gap for transportation professionals by providing a more rigorous assessment (via comprehensive readiness checklists) compared to existing AI CMMs developed by commercial technology companies. Importantly, stakeholders helped to define capability maturity levels within the AI-enabled ITS CMM, which helped to inform the resulting readiness checklist items developed by the research team. Specifically, stakeholders noted the importance of a Level 2 (out of 4) maturity to denote organizations that have made the proper steps to achieve AI-enabled ITS readiness but have not yet deployed AI-enabled ITS solutions. In addition, stakeholders recommended explicit recognition of a “level zero” maturity, because a large proportion of organizations have no awareness and/or capability within certain AI dimensions and/or subdimensions at this time of this writing.
